Last 5 Books I Read...

Okay people!  I'm back.  Our modem/router went out on our computer.  So...I was without internet for the last few days.  Instead of doing separate posts for each book I decided I'm just going to do one post for the 5 books I've read since then.  Here goes!

Shiver (The Wolves of Mercy Falls #1) by Maggie Stiefvater

This book focused on werewolves.  It had an overall interesting story, which of course included a love story.  A complicated teenager life that is made more complicated by the presence of wolves.  I'm looking forward to the next one in the series!

Inside Out (Insider #1) by Maria V. Snyder

I've heard a lot of great things about this story.  It took me a couple of chapters to actually get interested, but after finally getting into I found it pretty good.  I'll probably pick up the next one in the series.

I Am the Messenger by Markus Zusak

I love the way the chapters followed a deck of cards!  It was an interesting way of numbering that went well with the story.  This book had some great lessons about life and love.  The character has an hard time determining what he needs to do with the cards he receives in the mail, but with some coercion he figures it out and ultimately discovers what it was he was looking for.  I didn't expect it to end how it did, but it was a nice wrap-up to the story.

One Night That Changes Everything by Lauren Barnholdt

This book is great for teenagers.  It shows the consequences of one decision.  It shows how that one decision can change everything.  This girl finds out that decisions she made in the past are causing major problems for her now.  Major problems that she now has to deal with.  Pretty good book overall.

Liar by Justine Larbalestier
Wow...I didn't know what to believe in this story.  This girl is a compulsive liar.  Throughout the book you think you are hearing the truth and she turns around and tells you another "truth", then another.  By the end of the book I was so wrapped up in her lies that I didn't know what really happened or who she really was.  This was an awesome telling of the life a compulsive liar.  We learned a lot about the lies she told and how they affected those around her, as well as herself.
